Now in his third decade, Richard has worked in the non-profit sector as well as digital marketing strategy working for brands like the U.S. Tennis Association, Kia Motors America, PepsiCo, Green Mountain Coffee, and Merck.
Through his professional career — with stops in Iowa, Kansas, and New York — he has acquired a wide range of experiences. In his time, he meets regularly with the local chapter of the Log Cabin Republicans of New York City, has worked with Habitat for Humanity, and speaks out on many issues.
Richard’s interest in politics and policy began in 1998 and culminated in his run for mayor of Mason City, Iowa, in the fall and winter of 2002-03. He placed third but deemed the campaign a success not only because of the final result, but also for the conversations that the campaign inspired.
He is a 2005 graduate of the University of Northern Iowa and has written two books, Running From Yourself and Anything is Possible.
You can find him on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Instagram and Pinterest and you can also subscribe to this blog via the RSS feed!
